      New HIPAA Compliance Audit Program - The New Audit Protocol and How It Affects you

      Overview:

      In this session we will discuss the HIPAA audit and enforcement programs and how they work, and discuss the areas that caused the most issues in prior audits. We will explore what kind of issues and what kind of entities had the most problems, and show where entities need to improve their compliance the most.

      We will also explore the typical risk issues that lead to breaches of health information and see how those issues may be a target for auditors in the next round of audits.

      We will review the contents of the HIPAA Audit Protocol used in 2016 to show what documentation needs to be on hand should your organization be selected for an audit in the new round.We will present methods for using the contents of the HIPAA Audit Protocol to build your own compliance plan by extracting and updating the contents and relating your compliance activities directly to the questions that might be asked.

      In this session we will discuss the HIPAA audit and enforcement regulations and processes, and how they apply to HIPAA covered entities and business associates.We will explain the enforcement regulations and the new, increased fines and new penalty levels, including new penalties for willful neglect of compliance that begin at $10,000.

      We will discuss what information and documentation must be prepared in advance so that you can be ready for an audit at any time, including sample information request forms and questions asked at prior audits. The session will also cover how to know if you may become the subject of an audit or enforcement action, and what you can do to help limit your exposure.We will discuss how most enforcement actions come about and what can be done to prevent incidents that lead to enforcement activity.

      The HIPAA Privacy,Security, and Breach Notification regulations (and the recent changes to them) and how they will be audited will be explained. Documentation requirements for compliance will be explored and a framework of security policies necessary for compliance will be presented. The HIPAA Audit Protocol questions will be explored and ways of using the content to develop a compliance plan will be discussed. The process of exporting the questions will be shown, and a sample spreadsheet showing the results will be presented.

      The results of prior HHS audits and enforcement actions (and their penalties) will be discussed, including recent actions involving multi-million dollar fines and settlements.A plan for attaining compliance will be presented.
